Seoul (Web Desk): Samsung says it will start selling its highly anticipated folding phone on Friday.
The South Korean tech giant said on Thursday that the Galaxy Fold is going on sale after it spent the past several months "refining" the device to improve its "design and construction".
The nearly $2,000 phone will launch on September 6 in South Korea, followed later in the month by other key markets including the United States, France and Singapore, with 5G versions available in Britain and Germany.
The Galaxy Fold's original April launch was pushed back after reports that some reviewers' phones were breaking.
Journalists who had received the phones said the folding screen started flickering and turning black before fizzling out.
